Carolyn Friedlander - Clay quilt pattern


Clay is a needle turn applique quilt pattern by Carolyn Friedlander from her Slow Sewing Studio collection.

Clay is an explosion of color in a beginner-friendly appliqué project - just like a burst of fireworks.

Instructions are for needle-turn appliqué, but you can use another technique, like raw edged applique if desired.  Clay is a charm square friendly project or alternatively you could focus on just a few favourite fabrics for a more controlled look.  This design is easily adapted for any direction you want to take it. It’s a great beginner-friendly appliqué project as the (10) template shapes are a good size and feature gentle curves and points.

The pattern includes three different size options with a coloring chart for each, as well as tips on color and composition. 

The project sizes are as follows:

  • Throw - 62 x 62 inches
  • Wall 40 x 40 inches
  • Mini 22 x 22  inches

Please note, this pattern is able to be sent as a letter.  You will be charged the current Australia Post parcel rate, but any excess postage will be refunded when shipped
